- ... The roles of Pseudomonas aeruginosa polysaccharides (Pel, Psl, alginate) in reverse osmosis (RO) membrane biofouling and nitric oxide (NO) induced dispersal were investigated. While mutants deficient in Psl formed significantly lower biofilm (total cell and polysaccharide) biovolumes than the PAO1 wild-type on glass surfaces, total cell biovolumes were similar during fouling of RO membranes.
